Hello, My Friends!
Today’s card was so fun to create I had a dear friend Miss Betty request that I create a pinwheel Card, well I’ve never even seen a pinwheel card never mind knew how to create it so after a little time searching the Internet I found out it’s actually quite simple and fun, love the effect I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of these from me in the future. To create today’s court are use the Bird Ballard Suite a slightly vintage feel.
The card base is Whisper Weight measuring 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. The next layer is Crumb Cake cardstock measuring 5 1/4″ x 4″.
You will need two squares measuring 2 5/8″, Eight squares measuring 1 1/4 “( for the two Lg squares are used to Whisper White for the smaller eight squares are used the Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper.
I lined up the Whisper White square tip to tip using the dark cross-section of our grid paper, then I took the second and lined it up evenly with the dotted lines to create a diamond shape only putting adhesive in the center of the square.
Now attach your first square of designer series paper leaving a small edge, only adhered adhesive to the center of your square and each square after.
I used the same piece of designer series paper to cut out the squares I just use the reverse side so now take the second patterned square and lining up with the next corner leaving a slight edge.
Complete this process all the way around until you get to the last one when you have the last square you will have to put one in under one and over.
Now your pinwheel is complete, the edges of the squares do you not have glue on them at this time you could add additional glue to make sure all the squares are attached securely.
Using a scrap piece of Whisper White cut the second smallest Stitched Nested Label, I stamped the sentiment “hello” from the Free Bird Stamp Set on the upper right-hand section of the label. I then stamped one large Flower and two small Flowers using Petal Pink ink stamped one leaf image using Granny Apple Green ink then colored in the images gently using the light Petal Pink and Light Granny Apple Green Stampin Blends. Then using your paper snips cut out your flowers and leaf image.
I then broke the paper a bit to give the flower in the leaf a bit of texture, adhered it to the center of the pinwheel using glue dots, then added a Pearl to the center of the flower. I attached the label to the back of the Pinwheel about halfway then attach the two small flowers to the bottom right side of the label. Then using the Bird Ballard Trinket (I choose the key) and some Linen Twine I attached the key with a little bow to the right side.
I know attached the Scalloped Lace Trim horizontally to the top and bottom of the Crumb Cake Cardstock. I now attached the pinwheel and the sentiment using dimensionals onto the Crumb Cake Card Stock. Add a few Pearl Basic Jewels for some bling.
Attach all your layers down to the card base now your card is complete! How fun is this depending on the paper you choose you could give each card such an individual look.
